Beat The Street
Well done to all the families that got active during the summer term to take part in the Beat the Street Challenge.
You did a fantastic job and as a result our school came second in our area! As such we have won £100 in vouchers!
Our choice was between Waterstones or Decathlon vouchers. In true democratic fashion, we put it to the vote. The results were 113 votes for Decathlon and 53 votes for Waterstones. The next job will be to figure out what sports equipment to spend our precious £100 on!
The Lost Words Project
All of the children have been taking part in a whole-school art and language project this week.
All over the country, words are disappearing from children's lives. These are the words of the natural world -- Dandelion, Otter, Bramble and Acorn, all gone. The rich landscape of wild imagination and wild play is rapidly fading from our children's minds. The Lost Words contains some of these words and is beautifully illustrated.
We are using this book to inspire children to engage with language and nature and all children are creating their own calligrams. A calligram is a poem (or collection of words) in the shape of the subject.
